Thursdays at CatholicMom.com begin with a look at the past week’s Small Successes!
It’s so far, so good in the world of this stagehand. I haven’t broken CatholicMom.com yet, for one.
During the week, they perform for primary- and nursery-school field trips. But they’re short on stagehands, so I fill in (as a short stagehand.)
It’s fun to be backstage (and not in the green room where I saw way too many 10-year-old girls taking duck face selfies with their iPhones and posting them on Instagram. In front of their parents, no less. But that’s another story.)
Only one piece of scenery fell down. It was lightweight anyway and it didn’t hit anyone. (And it wasn’t my scenery.)
My only injury was a splinter, and I didn’t even need a needle to remove it. I could have used a nice bath in some Ben-Gay after Tuesday’s shows, though.
I didn’t have to be the one to handle the (real) dog. They had a designated person to walk the dog between scenes.
I’ll be back there for more shows today–and I’ll get my T-shirt today too!
